RAIN p226+227 - Hard by JocelynSamara RAIN p226+227 - Hard by JocelynSamara

I guess I probably could have had these be two separate updates, but that would have been a REAL jerk move on my part if I had. Even as it is, Iím sure Iíll get hatemail for this. ^_^

But, you know, Maria WAS kind of rude to Rain during the last chapter (with Rain completely unassuming as to why). And even if Maria feels guilty about it, itís hard to just ask forgiveness to someone sheís alienated for over a week.

Itís never easy, is itÖ?

I'm leaving a short comment this time, because I'm tired, and I've stalled too long, and something is better than nothing, and-

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I love the style behind these two pages. As soon as I saw the spoiler tag, I knew that shenanigans were afloat. Regardless, I fell for it completely; the "What actually happened" was at once the most surprising, and the funniest, part of the page. Similarly to the two-pager in chapter 7 (?), in which Heather announces her verdict to Kylie with a ton of white space, this page shows that you're experimenting with style. While this kind of thing definitely shouldn't be overused (if it becomes predictable, it's ruined), I'd love to see it used again! It works really well, both for laughs, and to highlight the difference between "What I want to do" and "What I actually do", a virtually-universal conflict.

I've technically done something kinda like this once before with this one: [link]

It's not necessarily the same joke, but I think it's along the same lines for the most part. Truth be told, I was thinking of that page when I made these.

Oh yeah, I completely forgot about that one! Until you reminded me just now, at which point I completely remembered it, heh heh.

Personally, I'm jealous of Rain's mentally-constructed beard. I can't seem to mentally-construct anything more than peach fuzz, as far as my own face is concerned. A beard like that... well, let's just say I'd get looks from everyone (...of respect, that is).

A hazyness on the first page might better explzin to some that this was what Maria was thinking, not actually doing, just a suggestion.

My intent was to mislead though. If you go into the first page knowing that what happened is false, then it loses that effect.

And just can't so close. Maria she just can't bring herself to talk with Rain. And Rain is probably wondering why Maria is avoiding her. Well she get there at some point. Also i love Rain's pigtails they make her look so cute.

.... Has Rain's hair always been like that? I don't remember seeing a shot of her from the back, so idk..... I alway's just assumed she had it down, or maybe a ponytail. ^_^;

Rain's got twintails, and yet Maria is the tsundere....

Never underestimate the element of surprise.
